When we got home from co-op this afternoon, Eli got really busy doing something. I was in the throes of preparing dinner so I didn't pay much attention. He kept coming over to me to tell me that he was cleaning his room. He seemed very excited. I thought it was great. Way to go Eli! Keep it up! Then a few minutes later he told me that he cleaned his bathroom as well. Wow, this kid is an over-achiever. But I never had a chance to inspect his work.
Then after dinner, Eli exuberantly helped me clear the table AND load the dishwasher. He was really into it. It was great. It was a fun time together.
Then it was time for bed. I was reading to Raef and Zach and Rinar was in charge of Eli. Rinar came over to me and said that I had to come and see Eli's "clean" room.
He took all of the soap bottles from the bathroom and stacked them on top of his little piano. He also propped a book up on the end of the bed, with a VHS tape and three remote controls, stacked like a pyramid.
I had cleaned his room earlier this week. It looked really good.
Eli just made a few improvements.
